Emigration records

Emigration records (documente emigrare) were kept in Romania starting in 1875.  The records
include lists of emigrants to America, other areas of Europe and other parts of the world.  Records were also kept of immigrants from Europe.  These records can be used by those of Romanian descent to find ancestors who came from Romania.  Romanians can use the records to find family members on collateral lines who left Romana.

Information provided:
Names of persons who emigrated, birth dates, birthplaces, names of other relatives, occupations, former places of residence, destinations, and date permission was given to emigrate.

Regional archives of the National Archive System

The family history library does not have any Romanian emigration records.[1]
